    Affidavit submitted by centre to Supreme Court yesterday - vaccines are voluntary and nobody can be forced to take them. According to the scientists vaccinated carry same viral load compared to unvaccinated. Vaccinated spread infections and get admitted to hospitals and mortality rate among them is 86%. Which means vaccine certificates doesn't possess extra power to prevent or protect anybody from infections. Criminal cases can be filed against anybody violating central government guidelines or rules. In Maharashtra a jailer and doctor who had administered vaccine to an inmate against his will were arrested on attempt to murder case. Just ask them if they come to your door whether they are pressurised by higher authorities or have financial incentives (or bribe), are they ready to pay compensation to any persons with allergies should they suffer vaccine injuries or death? Rs 5 crore has been demanded by the prison victim from the forced vaccinators. Know your rights and end this tyranny, sooner we wake up and unite whether jabbed or not will end these fascist rules. Now coming to the new variant- it's been found nobody is in hospital in South Africa till today, which means creation of scamdemic for gain is evident.

    Also, please note that taking vaccine or not is an individual’s choice, nobody can enforce it on anybody, not even MCC. Let everyone know that there is something called “human rights” which have to be respected. There must be a reason why some people have not taken the vaccine so far. Let the Supreme Court make it mandatory and will abide by the same.

    Can the MCC, any responsible doctor or medical authority confidently declare that those who have taken two does of vaccine are 100% safe, cannot transmit the disease and can walk free without wearing a mask??? If yes, then only you can force unvaccinated people to take the vaccine.
